Fiat 500 travelled all the way to Poultikasvaara

Our first car, when I was a little girl was a Fiat 500. We were so proud of it, although it did not have a real back seat, just a board where we put a matress. It was not a powerful car, I remember us cheering on Dad and the Fiat when the road went upwards in order to get us to the top.
Poultikasvaara is Sami language and means "nettle hill"
